No, Tim Tebow is not playing in today's Super Bowl. But somehow, he's getting as much, if not more, attention than most of the Giants and Patriots, especially on Twitter. And why not, since Katy Perry name-checked him at a concert last night, Katharine McPhee shared a photo of the pair, and he's being romantically linked, kinda, to Maria Menounos. Just plain folks are sending love and hate tweets to The Chosen One, too. See ten samples below.

Dear Tim Tebow, I'm not a praying man but I beseech you to deliver a Super Bowl to Eli The Faithful Manning over Tom Judas Brady.

We didn't predict the Super Bowl. We predicted the NFL cloning Tim Tebow to play QB on both teams: gamespot.com/madden-nfl-12/...
